UPDATE: Version 2 will be available soon. Slight dimension changes and proper mounting to be included in the 2nd Version!
I wanted to design/print a filament cleaner for my Prusa Lack Table that was only one piece. I want to have the ability to change the sponge on the inside of the cleaner on occasion.
This was designed to fit over the filament guide provided for the Prusa Lack Table Enclosure that feeds the filament from the top of the table through the table top. The sponge assists in ensuring the filament is clean when it enters the extruder.
This was designed in Solidworks with the intention of not being required to print multiple parts to assemble. It is a small box that swings out on a hinge.
- household cleaning sponge
- sponge dimensions (cut) 22.5mm x 22.5mm x 20mm
Hatchbox PLA / ABS / PETG
Supports are needed for this print because the top of the box is overhanging. To remove the supports on the bottom face, I used a small chisel and chipped away extra plastic.
Once the box is turned a couple times, the hinge should be broken in and should turn freely.
